Kelly Antoshak, 5, wrapped her arms around a pile of brightly colored plastic eggs on the floor and dropped them into a large wicker basket. Cora Harrison sat on a couch nearby making bows for the stuffed animals that would be awarded as prizes. And Jane Pessagno checked a small pile of eggs to be sure each contained a piece of chocolate candy. The group delighted in the task but had little time to admire - much less sample - their handiwork. There were thousands of plastic eggs to be filled and dozens of prizes to be prepared for the Easter Egg Hunt at Rockfield Manor in Bel Air. In its fifth year, the event has grown from a couple of hundred children to as many as 1,000, organizers say. They aren't the only ones hard at work preparing for this annual rite of spring.

Easter baskets in hand, or whatever they had to hold their eggs, hundreds of children lined up in Tydings Park Saturday for the annual Easter Egg Hunt. Sponsored by Havre de Grace Parks and Recreation, the hunt kicks off promptly at noon. The small plastic colored eggs are "hidden" throughout the park, some easy to find, some a little more obscure. Some dressed in their Easter best, children of all ages from all over Harford County and beyond scramble about to collect as many eggs as the can. Then the "hunt" is over almost as soon as it starts.

Gray skies, still-bare trees and aged tombstones would suggest a scene to inspire the pen of Stephen King and not the playful shenanigans of the Easter Bunny.But guess who showed up at Loudon Park Cemetery yesterday?The Easter Bunny and some 300 candy-loving youngsters, who took part in the cemetery's first egg hunt -- part of Loudon Park's efforts to show the neighborhood and the city that the family-owned and -operated graveyard "has a heart.""Our reason for doing this is to be a part of the community," said Marie Loewer-Nave, director of family services at the cemetery.

Baltimoreans took advantage of yesterday's clear skies and near-70s temperature in the usual ways: yard work, pickup basketball games and afternoon jogs. There also was an activity perfect for the season as about 200 area children spent part of their day scrambling for Easter eggs at the Baltimore Conservatory in Druid Hill Park. The fourth annual Spring Open House and Easter Egg Hunt - sponsored by the Horticultural Division of the city Department of Recreation and Parks and the Baltimore Conservatory Association - was a big hit for youngsters.

One thing about the weather: We haven't figured out how to control it, so you never know what's going to be emanating from the heavens on any given holiday. Easter's no exception. We've turned blue (nearly) in Massachusetts in our new bonnets, light jackets and patent leather shoes. We've stripped down to shorts and tank tops to gather melted, ant-infested chocolate eggs in Florida. Thankfully, Easter in Maryland tends to offer weather most of us can handle. Cool enough to get the kids into Sunday-go-to-meeting clothes (even if they're not totally frou-frou dresses or cute little suits)
